Cross Rental expands with purchase of Swegon Hire

Cross Rental Services Group has acquired Swegon Hire UK.

Cross Rental provides HVAC hire equipment to a large, diverse group of clients including Facilities Managers, manufacturing, warehousing, public sector, retail, and M&E contractors. Along with its heating and cooling hire business,Cross Rental provides commercial refrigeration and catering hire to a wide group of retailers, pharmaceutical, warehouse and logistics companies.

The company says Swegon Hire UK is a well-respected hire company with a 30-year heritage, with a reputation for supplying temporary cooling and heating solutions, particularly servicing the manufacturing, food & beverage and defence industries. The business was created following Swegon’s acquisition of Coolmation in 2013.

Cross Rental says the acquisition enables the two businesses to bring together two highly skilled teams and to increase its hire fleet, whilst improving the support infrastructure designed to clients

The wider Swegon UK business will continue to trade as usual, ’maintaining its focus on indoor environmental quality through providing a complete offering in HVAC, including ventilation, heating and cooling as well as system solutions.’

Kelvin Fogwill, Managing Director of Cross Rental Services UK, said: “Having worked in close partnership with Swegon Hire UK, we are delighted to announce this acquisition. It will be business as usual, with the added benefits of an improved capability to deliver an even higher standard of customer focus and service across the UK and Ireland”.

The Swegon Hire brand and operating name will be phased out in the coming weeks and the business will trade under the Cross Rental Services brand. Cross said: ”Over the coming weeks and months, the combined team will be working hard to ensure that Cross Rental Services becomes the supplier of choice for all HVAC hire solutions.”
